Can't be that busy if Simon's got time to do house calls to Home Farm.

Tomorrow. Saturday 8th. Before midnight (though probably not much before).

Apologies to all for the delay. We've got a lot of scripts to read. And re-read. And read again.

OK folks,

Here's the news you were/weren't hoping for:

We've decided to longlist 8 scripts this time. We'll whittle them down to 4 for the show at the Diorama Theatre.

Without further ado, they are:

(in alphabetical order)

BLUE SKY THINKING James Huntrods
DNR Kate Smurthwaite
EMPTY NEST Pete Barrett
METROLAND Chris Harris
PAPER CUPS Amanda Richardson
PSYCHO MILLER Helen Cattle
THE GRIND Tom Goodliffe
WAITING Carrie Doyle

Congrats to those 8 writers and commiserations to all those who didn't make the list.

Congrats to those 8!

Is there also a list of those who did well but not well enough?

Both the public showcase at the end of September and industry showcase on October 15 will be open to the public and free of charge. Just email us at info@sitcommission.com to reserve a seat. We'll have more details nearer the time and we'd love to see you there.

Oh well, disappointed but 9th out of 160 isn't too bad.
At least I presume that's where we came!

Well done to the 8 and good luck!

Woo-hoo! I made the 8. Super-chuffed, but I've got tons to work on before the next cut.

We think this is a good idea. And we're going to publish a list of the top twenty (you already have eight).

More details to follow.
